Whether you love throwing parties or enjoy a contemplative drink alone, a home bar is a great addition to any house or apartment. But no home bar is complete without these accessories:
Most drinks have a specific type of glass to best present their flavor and appearance. Think about which types of alcohol or cocktails you most enjoy, then reflect your preferences in your glassware. Common types of glassware include: rocks glasses, wine glasses, beer mugs, pints, highballs, shot glasses, and margarita glasses.
Bar Kit Tools
To make mixed drinks and cocktails, you’ll need to measure and mix your ingredients. Be sure to include the following bar kit tools at your wet or dry bar: martini shakers, strainers, jiggers, bottle openers, corkscrews, stirring spoons, and speed spouts.
Many mixed drinks and cocktails include fruits or other foods to add a little flourish. Martinis and other drinks often include olives, cocktail onions, cherries, limes, oranges, and other fruits and vegetables. Consider stocking up on cinnamon sticks for more holiday-inspired drinks and celery stalks for a Bloody Mary.
Many in-home bars include an area where you can store a few bottles of wine. There are a plethora of portable wine racks you can add to your home bar. Sophisticated home bars sometimes include small refrigerators where you can chill champagne and white wine.
Comfortable Bar Stools
You can have all the accessories in the world, but won’t enjoy your in-home bar if you’re uncomfortable. Make sure you have a place for you and your guests to sit. Match the bar stools to the in-home bar style. Also, remember to measure your bar stools appropriately.
